Great Oven but microwave failed twice
Hi, we have now had our Solardom for 2 years. It's a workhorse in the kitchen.
Unfortunately i have had to log a second call on the Microwave function as it stopped heating. LG Were very good on both occasions and fixed it under warranty, but i'm not sure why the microwave keeps failing and am concerned it will fail again in a years time and we will be footing the bill for repairs. For the price, i expected better robustness.

It is the most important appliance in our Kitchen
Our in-built SolarDome is seven years old. Not a day has passed that it wasn't used. Takes mastering to get the most out of it. Never skipped a beat. So now as we are moving it was the only choice. It served well as our second oven. Now on to the next gen!!!

This microwave is unreliable
We purchased this microwave in March 2012 and within the first month the globe blew (you cannot replace yourself). Then the magnetron went twice within the first 3 months. LG replaced the microwave after we pushed to have it replaced. The replacement microwave lasted 3 months before the microwave function failed again!! The microwave failed every time after we used the steam function, who makes a steam microwave which cannot handle STEAM??

Great all round oven, but needs more power
This oven is great for those who want something small and can grill, bake, microwave and steam (in combinations as well). However, I would say that it is not the best at any of the individual functions. For example, my fan forced convection oven bakes/grills better. My benchtop steamer has much more steam, and my other microvave heats faster. If LG could up the power by 50% all round, you'd have a world beater!
The auto functions are great - very convenient. But it would be nice if they allowed you to use the auto program as a base and let you change a few settings. Instead you're left to guess what the program consists of and try to create one on your own.

Pretty happy with this oven
Well its not a full size oven and its not a stand alone microwave but it does a really good job of trying to be all things.
It fits in our small kitchen and I love the microwave/grill feature that heats a frozen item and crisps/browns it at the same time.
The convection oven works great, the microwave is lite at 700 watts but gets the job done and we have yet to get our heads around the steam function.
At this stage would recommend to others to purchase.
